When I was a young boy my cousin took me to Filbert Street for the first time, and John Sjoberg was in the Leicester City team that day. The Big Number 5. Consequently he became one of my football heroes, along with the other City players of that time. John was a tough, brave, no-nonsense centre half, and a tower of strength in the Leicester defence alongside Graham Cross.Many years later, in my job as a graphic artist, I had the pleasure of meeting John several times, as he was the MD of Beaumanor Press. He was always a charming man – very happy to chat with me about football, and eventually I got him to autograph the programme from that first match – a 2-2 draw with Bolton Wanderers in 1969.I was very sad to hear of John's death. He was a lovely man and will always be remembered by Leicester fans of a certain age, as a true City Legend. Rest in Peace John. God Bless You.
